Product Description

Rebecca (Eva Green) and Thomas (Matt Smith) had a winning formula. Reunited childhood sweethearts, they overcame every obstacle which stood in their way but now comes their biggest challenge; can they overcome death? When Thomas dies suddenly, Rebecca struggles to live in a world without him. Consumed by desperation she even contemplates the idea of cloning. Can she bring Thomas back once more? Will she be able to live with the consequences if she does? More importantly, will anyone discover her shocking secret? (Please note the lenticular sleeve is only available for a limited time and while stocks last).

From Amazon.co.uk

A film that's perhaps initially most notably for being the movie leading man debut for Doctor Who star Matt Smith, Clone sees him co-star with Eva Green. The premise of the film hinges on the untimely death of Smith's character, and the drive then by Green's to see if there's a way she can bring him back into the world. Her plan is given away somewhat by the film's title, as she looks into the possibility of cloning him, to bring him back to her side.

Interestingly, Clone doesn't go down a gross-out horror route. Instead, it chooses to wrestle with the moral conundrums presented by its ideas. What, after all, would be the ramification of the cloning? Can it really work? Can a relationship really resume under such circumstances? By taking such a science fiction premise, Clone manages to take an interesting look at dealing with grief, in a really quite sensitively handled movie.

It works, too. Smith and Green make for engaging leads, and the studious direction of Benedek Fliegauf is commendable. Its pacing is kept deliberately modest, and there's space to explore the issues the film raises. At times, the low budget becomes evident, and there are bumps along the way with regards the script. But Clone is a worthwhile movie, and a promising start for Matt Smith's headline movie career. --Jon Foster

Format: Blu-ray
Matt Smith is particularly well known for playing the Doctor, but in Clone we see him in a Sci-Fi drama which doesn't involve time-travel or sonic-screwdrivers. Instead of exciting adventure, Clone is a slow paced drama which touches on themes of social discrimination, genetic cloning, and pseudo-incest...

Rebecca and Tommy are two children with a close relationship, though young they are developing feelings for each other and when Rebecca moves to Japan with her mother it has a deep impact on both of them. Twelve years later she returns and the emotional connection which never broke means that the two adults feel instantly comfortable with each other - it seems that two soul mates have finally been reunited. Unfortunately for the lovers, tragedy strikes and Rebecca is left without her Tommy again - but she applies for a genetic cloning license, she will carry a baby genetically identical to Tommy, she will give birth to him and the two shall be reunited for a second time.

Their home, a beach hut, seems to represent the solitude of the family within. This is set either in the near future, or an alternate version of our own present when cloning is common and clones suffer from social stigma. Rebecca is protective of her child and is aware of how adults feel about their children mixing with clones. Clone kids are seen as second rate and the language used by gossipers is reminiscent of the toxic racist terms common in our not-so distant past. It's a discrimination which is unofficially accepted against 'copies' - young Tommy may be a clone, but he's still just a little boy and doesn't understand why the other children aren't allowed to come to his birthday party.

I bought this because I'm a Dr. Who fan, and I love Matt Smith as the Dr. & wanted to see him in a different role. This film did not disappoint. Rather than give another review here, suffice it to say this viewer was very impressed (by both Matt and the film in general).
What I'd rather emphasize here is that the Amazon listing is inaccurate. I live in the U.S., where this film has not been released on BluRay. I purchased this disc from Amazon UK based on the product description listing it as "Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C". This is not true. It is a region "B" only disc. Thankfully my BluRay player has a hack code, so I was able to watch it. ...But the average buyer with a region A player will not be able to view this disc.
Five stars, but -1 for the misleading Amazon listing.

This is a strange bag of nuts. Probably the best thing that can be said about it is that it's challenging. For me, it raised some very interesting questions about how far we really ought to let our desires and the advancement of science go. Rebecca struck me as a self obsessed woman, who really didn't think of how the consequences of her actions would impact on those around her, nor of the psychological damage they may cause. She is a character that lacks depth and emotion. Eva Green has acted it well, but didn't seem to have much to work with. Matt Smith's character(s?) Tommy were the warmest in the whole thing. Overall, it raises some valid points, but was very thin on the ground.

Definitely one for an ethics or sociology class and not a quiet night in front of the box!

Format: DVD
Not only did I find this film bizarrely creepy, with the idea of an obsessive woman cloning her deceased boyfriend in an effort to bring back her soulmate, it was also wrong on so many other levels. Firstly having given birth to, and breast fed an innocent little baby and then lovingly raised this child, the idea that you could consider the child anything other than you own offspring is beyond consideration. How many parents who lose a partner have offspring who resemble that lost loved one. You don't see them looking at their child in an unhealthy manner, unless of course they are perverted in some way. This creepiness aside, the total lack of conversation between mother and son, and the lengthy pregnant pauses, made the whole experience amazingly dull and boring. They whole story lacked reality, and the final scene was beyond disturbing. The other amazing aspect was the hut that they lived in was on the edge of the sea, in the middle of a beach, but it appeared to be serviced with electricity and broadband. I would love to know who their provider was. I would also love to know what face cream Rebecca used (or perhaps she had a painting in her attic) because she never aged in all the time it took her son to grow up. The acting was good enough, although they did not have to learn too many lines as the dialogue was minimal. It seems to me that this is a film that was made to appease the would be film buffs, as opposed to the majority of the general public, not for me.

No I'm kidding. I saw this last year, with cautious eyes I was aware of the issues dealt with and was prepared to fast forward or cover my eyes at the yucky/creepy bits I was expecting, BUT although a tad weird it was a beautiful story, characters sympathetically portrayed and you really felt for them and the ending some may find uncomfortable but I thought it was heart achingly beautiful. Ok so I've been a Matt Smith fan since he became The Doctor but it's good to see he can do serious and not just loopy.
